I don't usually give rumours the time of day, but this one intrigued me nevertheless. From the same blogger that broke the Bungie and Microsoft split news, they now "claim" that Microsoft are secretly working on a Wii style, Wii-Mote for the Xbox 360.
Now, it's not the first mention of this in recent times. On Monday, MTV reported that an inside source revealed that Microsoft has been working on a Wii-Mote style controller for the Xbox 360. First that and now this revelation and more detail from the PI blogger.
The blogger claims that the new project is called Newton, ""Newton" as in Newtonian Physics relating to gravity, inertia and acceleration". Nothing concrete is really given, just plenty of speculation. But two fairly reliable sites breaking the same news in a week... Surely it can't be a coincidence?
It's just like Microsoft to try and get their finger in every pie as well. Nintendo have had it easy recently having no competition and Microsoft would be stupid to not try and get involved in this huge market. I wouldn't be surprised if Sony made a similar move.
